What are ramps? The common Wild Leek (Allium tricoccum) is our best wild onion and a source of food and spiciness all year round.
Alas, it is still too early, although the green shoots are starting. Perhaps in five days or a week from now it will be harvest time.
I then spent the rest of the hour hiking down the creek bed, climbing up a hill to see what was on the other side.

I have not run at all this week due to working all sorts of shifts. Working until 9pm and then doubling back at 8 am the next morning does not make me want to exercise. My hip flexors have been very tight, but that might be a function of the 50K on Sunday and then all the time on my feet at work. So the hiking was beneficial in stretching out my hamstrings. That may be my goal for today, STRETCH!
